Join Dr. Elizabeth Hoover as she discusses her book project “From ‘Garden Warriors’ to ‘Good Seeds;’ Indigenizing the Local Food Movement”. This work explores Native American farming and gardening projects around the country: the successes and challenges faced by these organizations, the ways in which participants define and envision concepts like food sovereignty, and the importance of heritage seeds. Dr. Hoover is the Manning Assistant Professor of American Studies at Brown University.
